PPG: 14.2 APG: 1.3 RPG: 10.4

Anthony Davis might not just be the best one-and-done player of the Calipari era at Kentucky, but the best one-and-done player in college basketball history. Only Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony are in the discussion with him.

Davis wasn't quite a polished offensive player yet, but he dominated every facet of the game with his size and athleticism. He averaged 4.7 blocks and 1.4 steals and was named the NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player after capping off Kentucky's run to a national championship with just six points, but 16 rebounds, five assists, three steals, and six blocks in the title game against Kansas.
